Or is the hawthorn looking particularly stonking this year?
Loads of it blooming away in Birkdale dunes this morning, where Willow Warblers, Chiffies, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat and Blackcap were singing their brains out.
Good numbers of Swifts hawking overhead too, while Greenland Wheatears were moving in small numbers along the coast.
Couldn't get in the mood to squint through the fence at the undoubtedly gorgeous female Wilson's Phal at Seaforth at the weekend, but plenty of Corn Bunts were rattling and jangling out on Plex, and you can't ask for a more dramatic bird than that.
Northern Marsh Orchid flowering in the dunes now and mucho Cow Parsley a go go on the mosses.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
